So I just finished making the $5 in Paris t-shirt/sweater pattern and of course for the sleeves I had to use my DPNS.
I used to be in love with my DPN's. I mean, I could make socks, hats, tubes, and all sorts of lovely things with them. I thought they were soo much cooler than straights and I used them and nothing else for about three months until I got my first pair of circular needels.
But I realized on Friday that my love for my DPN's has faded and now I can't STAND the things. I have the metal ones (or are they aluminum? I have no idea.) and every time I use them, no matter what I'm doing with them or how I hold them, I end up getting poked and bruised by the pointy ends. After just four rows I was ready to throw them across the room.
I don't know if it's just because I got spoiled on my non-pokey circular needles or what but I genuenly dislike my DPNs now!
Has anyone else had this problem? Is there any way to restore my DPN love with some non-pokey ones?
